I've never been one for resolutions and when I started doing this blog I told myself I wanted to do one post a month minimum. So here we are 2 months later... Oh well, I'm not sure how many read this anyway so whatever.
These two months have certainly been eventful. We struggled to get the crops planted in May. Had a decent stretch in early June and then Flag Day hit with 5-6" of rain. Honestly, I did write down all the rains but quit adding them up after a foot of rain. It was pretty depressing to see so much of our crop under water. The corridor from Sanborn to Hartley looks bad but that's enough of that.
The pumpkins have really rebounded wonderfully. I think they are a little behind but not too much. Soon I will be doing the personalizing and I love doing that. So if you want a special pumpkin, let me know soon!
The fireworks season went well. We completely changed things from last summer. I honestly didn't know anything last year and we have learned so much from then til now and continue to learn and look for the new and exciting. The local support was awesome and we couldn't do it without you- the customer! Thanks again!
So now I'm in between. I spend an hour or two in the punkin patch hoeing or tilling out weeds. They defs got the jump on me this year. I wasn't able to get out there for 3 weeks because of the rain and it's funny how the weeds always seem to grow no matter what! We have a few family things and events coming up and I'm looking forward to those over the next month. I hope everyone is enjoying these beautiful summer days! I love summer.
My name is Amy Solsma. I'm just a chick out standing in her field. I have lots of time to ponder while I hoe out weeds.
